Well… where to start? Being asked to take part in a radio show has never been on my bucket list!
But wow, what a surprise this experience has been. Thanks Juliet for encouraging me. Bruce Guthrie, the Dedication game’s producer and host sent me an email with an invite and a set of questions including questions such as ‘What is your favourite food’ and ‘What is your guiding motto.’ Based on the answers you give, someone picks songs as a gift and of course you return the favour.
The recordings have a team of three guests and of course the DJ. In my first two recordings I was joined by Jacky, Paulo, Stewart, Tom and Anthony, my fellow BHT Volunteer. Also DJ Bruce as a guest himself which was nice.
During the first recording of the programme nobody has met, so the music is based solely on a few questions. I have listened a few times since recording, and apart from getting used to hearing your own voice, I have enjoyed not only taking part but listening to the music over again. You will definitely walk away with a new set of songs on your playlist, I have and it’s really great fun. I still have another show to record and after doing two already I am looking forward to the last session.
You can listen to the recordings here (programmes 1, 2 and 3):
Many thanks Bruce and the others at Radio Reverb.
